Hello! This is Julia from the food blog JuliasAlbum.com (you can also find me on PINTEREST) with the Fall-inspired dinner recipe for you! I love Fall, especially because it gives me an excuse to indulge myself in making all kinds of cozy meals using my favorite Fall ingredients, such as sweet potatoes, cinnamon, maple syrup, etc. ! It’s no wonder that my today’s recipe is a delicious, easy-to-make, Fall-inspired dinner from Better Homes and Gardens: Maple-Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes. Unbelievably good, kids would love it, this meal is full of protein, fiber, and it’s gluten-free!
You’ll love that this recipe takes 30 minutes to make, and there are only 6 ingredients involved! It’s one of those rare recipes where sweet and savory flavors are perfectly combined. Sweet potatoes, maple glaze, savory chicken – this is the ultimate Fall comfort food, and it will be a great addition to your weekly menu.
The chicken is cooked in butter + olive oil with Montreal seasoning. YUM!
The final dish combines chicken seasoned with Montreal seasoning, Maple glaze, and mashed potatoes! Wonderful combination!
And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:
- The recipe calls for packaged mashed sweet potatoes – I just made my own because they are so easy to make.
- The recipe calls for 1 pound of chicken breast tenderloins – I just used 1 pound of chicken breast and sliced it horizontally, then into smaller longer slices. As you can see on the photos, I was able to get about 12 good-size slices out of 1 pound chicken breast! Also, the recipe calls for cooking chicken in 2 tablespoons of butter; I used 1 tablespoon of butter + 1 tablespoon of olive oil instead.
- I omitted green onions (didn’t have any) and just sprinkled the dish with chopped fresh parsley right before serving.
